Aldi coffee may be underfilled.

Two consumers have filed a federal class action lawsuit claiming Aldi coffee doesn’t make as many cups as is advertised on the product’s labeling because the packages are underfilled.

Eileen Brodsky of New York and Rhonda Diamond of California both say they’ve purchased Beaumont Coffee products from Aldi grocery stores and found them to contain less coffee than the coffee labels say they should. Beaumont is Aldi’s house brand of coffee.

Brodsky says she bought a canister of Aldi coffee that was packaged with a label indicating it would make 210 6-ounce cups of coffee. One tablespoon of coffee would make one 6-ounce cup.

The package only ended up having 137 tablespoons of ground coffee in it, though, she claims.


That equates to a 35% difference.

Diamond, meanwhile, says she bought a 90-serving container of the Aldi coffee at her local store, but only ended up getting 64 cups of coffee out of it — meaning the package was underfilled by nearly 28%.

Lawyers for Brodsky and Diamond filed a class action lawsuit on their behalf Dec. 21 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Aldi Inc. and the two coffee roasting companies that supply the ground coffee, Coffee Holding Company Inc. and Pan American Coffee Co. LLC, are named as defendants.

Aldi coffee may be underfilled. The plaintiffs are seeking the court’s permission to represent a Class of consumers who purchased the Aldi coffee nationwide, and two Subclasses of consumers in their home states. They estimate each Subclass would contain hundreds of thousands of potential Members.

“Defendants employ a classic bait-and-switch scheme that causes unsuspecting consumers to spend more money for less than the advertised amount of coffee they believe they are purchasing,” the class action lawsuit claims. “The packaging and labeling of the Coffee Products prominently advertise that they will produce a certain number of servings when, in fact, they do not.”


The Aldi coffee class action is only the latest in a string of at least four other similar class action lawsuits filed against companies across the country over claims their coffee products don’t contain the amount indicated on their labels.

In July, a woman filed a class action lawsuit against the Kroger grocery store chain in federal court in California for allegedly misleading consumers about the amount of coffee in its ground coffee packages.

A month later, a man filed a similar class action lawsuit in federal court in Pennsylvania against Kraft Heinz Co., accusing the company of shorting the amount of ground coffee in Maxwell House-brand coffee products.

Another class action was filed against the makers of Maxwell House, over the same basic claims, in federal court in Florida in October.

And earlier this month, a woman filed a class action lawsuit in federal court in Illinois against the maker of Folgers coffee for allegedly underfilling its coffee products compared to the amount listed on its labels.

Lead plaintiffs Brodsky and Diamond and the proposed Class Members are represented by L. Timothy Fisher and Brittany S. Scott of Bursor & Fisher PA.

The Aldi Coffee Class Action Lawsuit is Eileen Brodsky, et al. v. Aldi Inc., et al., Case No. 1:20-cv-07632, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
